I am totally disgusted with the service from this restaurant and I want you to include my comments on the review of this restaurant/take away. I had placed my order at 8.20pm and was advised that I would get my order within the hour. Come 9.30pm my order did not arrive so I called the restaurant. I spoke to one... More

4.5 stars on Yelp. I went by Rani and it looked very nice, but did not have the stars on Yelp. Chose to take a cab to go to India Quality Restaurant! Got seated immediately. Wait staff were courteous and pleasant. The appetizer was semi cold-- I was getting to get annoyed. However the Sheek Kabab came out good (why... More

It's disappointing to hear we missed a chance to wow you, Shree. Thank you for choosing us for dinner! It sounds like some silly mistakes like your appetizer being cool and light salt on your kebab put a damper on your experience overall. By all means you're welcome to dine where ever you like in the future, but I hope... More

We (2 adults and a teenager) had a very enjoyable meal here. Food was above average Indian and service was fine.

This restaurant doesn't take reservations and the whole ethos seemed to be "ship 'em in and out as fast as possible". We waited in a queue about 10 minutes. The food was served quickly and was of excellent quality but as soon as you put youtube cutlery down, your plates were whisked away and the bill presented!

DavoRutland, we love to let our guests relax and enjoy a delicious meal at their own pace. I'm sorry if we made you feel rushed -- that was not our intent! We appreciate your kind words about our cooking though. Glad to hear your selections all hit the spot. We'll make sure to let you take time to enjoy it... More

The food was very good! We had chicken tikka masala and curry lamb. The lamb was way too spicy (I asked for a medium, but maybe they confused) and they prpared me another one definitely less spicy and was very good! The staff is very kind!

Apologies once again for the overly spicy lamb, Valentina! It was our pleasure to fix that for you though; thank you for letting us know it wasn't right. We hope you loved Boston! Best wishes, Pammi S., Owner More

The restaurant provided great service and good value; however, our meal was average and we have had better at other Indian restaurants. We had the butter chicken.

Average cooking is definitely not what we aim for, Daryl, so I'm sorry to hear your meal wasn't more impressive. Thank you for reaching out with a little feedback though; that's always welcome! Perhaps you caught us on an off-night? Typically our guests rave about the quality of our dishes, so we'd love another chance to wow you soon. Keep... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel. It is quite small and was full when we arrived. We were ignored for a good 7 minutes before being greeted (luckily for them we were too tired to go elsewhere). Once seated the service was efficient but surly. The food was excellent and the portions were a reasonable size. Prices were equivalent... More

Meal was good and spicy. Service is inexperienced, borderline bad and not welcoming. However, after visiting the restroom, I would never go back. It's greasy and dirty; you have more clean toilet at a gas station! I had a quick peak at the kitchen and didn't seem to be better. I will not go back. Kashmir was a better experience... More

expatsonthego, cleanliness is a crucial part of what we do, not only in our kitchen and dining room but also in our restrooms. We regularly inspect the facilities and tidy up when necessary. If the restroom was not at its best during your visit, I want to apologize, but I assure you it did not remain that way for long.... More

We went for dinner at the India Quality Restaurant in Boston. We ordered 2 papadoms and pickles (which in the final bill appear as complimentary). You would normally expect freshly chopped onions, lime pickle, tandoori sauce, and ginger however, the "pickles" were already on the table in 3 containers, and were tired, quite depleted so not sure how long they...

We felt un-welcome at this place. Even though the food was good, poor service made me give 3 stars to this review. Their portions are smaller compared to other Indian restaurants but the prices are adjusted accordingly so no complaints there.
